How It Went

Monday morning
It was a smaller crowd in today’s storytime because of a day off of school. We tend to be a travel for the long weekend library population. The smaller group let me really get to have one-on-one time with each of the kiddos. Each of them got to assist in a special task today! Our best book was Maggie and Michael Get Dressed — the group just loved the silliness of watching Michael try to dress Maggie. And they were also in stitches over “Froggy Gets Dressed” on the flannelboard.

Tuesday morning
I had 100% attendance today; it’s such a rare occurrence that I always feel the need to celebrate it! I did an almost completely different storytime for this group. Clothes is such a great theme full of awesome materials. These kiddos really responded to the “Socks Match-Up” game and were jumping off the floor waiting for their turn to match up a sock. I love letting the kids handle flannelboard pieces now that they’re older. Their favorite book was How to Dress a Dragon.
